about rosa parks. no question it was a big moment and the media took notice. cnn said that rosa parks was a tired seamstress, she was the troublemaker. but, as you point out, was a first-class troublemaker. so how did the image of her change? what did people understand of her at the time in 1955? >> there were two things that worked. certainly, during the boycott, a background of her political history for the safety of her. they play it down, put it on the back burner. they talk about her as a good, christian women. they do not foreground her political history, in part because -- this is 1955. this is the cold war. they are immediately renovated. all sorts of crazy rumors come out about her. she is an naacp plant, she is mexican -- all manner of rumors in montgomery spring up. in part, to counter the idea that these are outside forces coming to montgomery, there is a tendency to talk about her just as a local woman, a seamstress, christian. in the decades afterwards, that takes on a life of its own, in terms of her political history. rosa parks also leaves montgomery in 1957 and spend

qaeda, unquote. one many explained to me over tea in the capital last month. another told cnn after a failed strike, quote, i would not be surprised if 100 tribesmen joined al qaeda as a result of the latest drone mistake, unquote. rather than promote the author of a failing strategy, we need a c.i.a. director who will halt the agency's creeping militarization and restore it to what it does best. i would say what it did best at one time. collecting human intelligence. it's an intelligence agency, not a lightweight version of joint special operations command. and until america wins the intelligence war, missiles will continue to hit the wrong targets, kill too many civilians, and drive young men into waiting arms of our enemies. without accurate on the ground intelligence, our policies will fail, george w. bush launched two major ground invasions, and mr. obama has tried several smaller wars, neither strategy has worked. in yemen, which has been the laboratory for mr. obama's shadow wars, aqap has more than tripled in size after three years of drone strikes. when the united states st

, that is a critical priority. we have heard both former c.i.a. director michael hayden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and that the impact of those strikes is creating a backlash. for example, it was said that the unmanned strikes is greater than the what they can appreciate. they are hated on a visceral level. he add the targeted killings add to the presence of american arrogance. he said this adds to the perception of americans that said we can fly where we want, we do what we want because we can. general hayden also has expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-te
